Andrew's Achievement -- free today

From the Author
Not enough is being written about elder abuse. We seem to hear more about this issue taking place in large care facilities. I believe more attention needs to be paid to the domestic violence and elder abuse taking place in too many Canadian homes. Baby boomers are coming into their senior years and unfortunately too many of them are suffering abuse at the hands of their own family members.
